Light + Camera = Play Time

There was only one thing I obligated myself to do yesterday. It was the dreaded cleaning of the bathroom. I procrastinated as long as I could but eventually tackled the job. Other than that I filled my day with fun and all from the comfort and warmth of home.
One of my play time activities involved my camera. I have a table in the corner of my dining room with a lantern made of wood and a mason jar. It was getting dark out and I turned the light on and set different things next to it and snapped away.

I've added textures to the first two pictures because I can and because I like them. The first one is with a vase of silk roses.


Antique tea cup


cheap dollar store birds


and my trustee assistant. I was under his watchful eye the entire day.

Oh my gosh, these are beautiful!! I have just been watching a documentary about the wonderful photographer Annie Lebovitz, and I want her book, too. These remind me of her photos. The light, the textures, beautiful.

Some lovely edits on your pictures Ann...it's so nice to be able to keep yourself cozy and warm with all the cold outside the window...and such a bonus to have fun at the same time!!

I loathe cleaning the bathrooms too!

I love that second shot especially! And Duke steals the show once again with his portrait, LOL.

Grace said...

That a great photo of the dog...

Ann all your artistic photography is awesome but DUke's photo will always win hands down. Today I went to a dog show and had the time of my life meeting so many 4 legged darlings!

Beautiful! Love the textures you added... I have recently started playing with Picnik and just as I've started to have fun, I find that they are closing it down in April... darn google :-) What do you use?
Hugs, antonella :-)

The first 3 photos are very cool but they pale in comparison to the most beautiful Duke.

Lin said...

Dang, those are good!!! That looks like a fun day indeed.

I was cleaning house in case you were wondering. :(

BeadedTail said...

Oh yeah, cleaning house was on my list and I forgot all about it until now! :) I like your photos and of course Duke is cute as can be! Sadie's jealous because she can't fit on a chair!

Sher said...

Duke looking as handsome as always.
